Great Experience Working with Paul

Fund: US Venture Partners (USVP)

Posted by david wu on 2008-01-14

PUBLIC:

I have had the pleasure of working with Paul since 1999, when he joined the board of directors at Homestead Technologies. He joined the board originally as an independent advisor, prior to joining USVP, so I have had the chance to work with him on the board while he was an entrepreneur, as well as later when he became a venture capitalist.

I think it is the wealth of his operational experience, in addition to his insightful and intellgent (and often witty) personality, that make it such a pleasure to work with Paul. Paul is always a straight-shooter, and tells it like it is, focusing on the key drivers of the business, whether graphs are going up-and-to-the-right, or times are tough.

There were times when Paul was one of the few people willing to call out problem areas in the business plan/organization, but it is this level of honesty and confidence in his accessment that makes Paul's critique so valuable.

Even though Paul never invested in Homestead (now sold to Intuit), I would definitely go to Paul if I was looking for opportunities to raise money in the future.
